I first searched this forum but could not find a similar post. My problem is that my garage door is not closing flush to the cement (ie: Door touches cement on one side and is an inch off the ground on the other). At first I thought the house had settled and the floor was not level but now I am sure the floor is level and the garage door is not.

The solution is not readily apparent to me. Has anyone even dealt with this?

Thanks in advance.

Check the cable position relative to the sheave on the low side. Chances are that it slipped off the outer diameter of the sheave allowing that side of the door to reach the bottom first.

It has only a single cable in the center so, unless I misunderstand, I don't think that could be the problem. Please let me know if I'm not understanding.

Verify that the guides for the rollers on both sides are vertical.

Is this a single-wide door? Is it made up of hinged pieces or is it a single, solid door?

If it's made of 3 or 4 pieces, check to see if spacing of the pieces are all equal when the door is closed and when it is raised just a couple of inches.
Also, when the door is down, see if the top of the door is at exactly the same angle as the bottom.

If its a multiple section door, you might want to check that a set of hinge screws have not elongated in their holes or that the bolts have not come off completely. This will allow one side of the door to "stretch" and bottom out first.
